How to Setup Belkin Router as a Range Extender?

I am facing low bandwidth issues with my Belkin router and because of this problem, I want to set up Belkin router as A Range extender. But I am not aware what method should be followed to set up Belkin router to extend coverage area so that I can enjoy enough WiFi signal strength in every corner of my house. Please help me to set up my Belkin device as an access point connected by ethernet to the router so that low signal strength issue gets resolved.
